Reuben Spread

This is an amazing pot luck dip to bring to a crowd!

My friend i got this from used sliced corned beef from the deli, i bought a cheap small brisket, threw it in the crock pot with carrots and celery and cooked the be-jesus out of it. I cooled it overnight and then made the dip from it! I forgot to take a picture, it was just so good!

One thought on “Reuben Spread

  1. I wonder…what do you call a sandwich that is spread with reuben spread? Is it still a reuben? Hmm.

    Philosophical quandary.

    Looks good though!
